"Except for the old Junior and Senior cleaners, I have found Dyson cleaners come apart quite easily."

Some restructuring is needed here.

Many vacuum cleaners are difficult to repair, except for the old Hoover Junior and Senior models.

I also find Dyson cleaners easy to strip and repair.

This now makes more sense!

Thanks all for continued input. is there a web link for diagnoses, fixing repairing dysons that you use. I am not mechanically minded but now confident in building repair pc's. With mixed views on dysons might have to learn to sort them too.

We bought a Sebo upright about twelve years ago and added another about two years later. Fabulous but not cheap.

will look at this one along with others when we get a chance to got to a johnlewis store this seems to be the only store these days that still has a good selection of electrical goods on display.

We've had one for years and the only "extra" thing I've had to do, was replace the cable drum - the ratchet became unreliable. That was about a month ago after probably 6-7 years of use.

Ours is a DC02 (not an upright), but I'd recommend them to anyone.

As I've mentioned before, we have a Sebo X4 Extra which is several years old.

It cost the same or less than the Dyson offerings at the time but, in contrast, is built like the proverbial tank and utterly reliable.

Just as you would expect from a German manufacturer...:-)

"Just as you would expect from a German manufacturer...:-)"

Sadly, German manufacturers outsource production to cheaper labour markets like everyone else, so check on the label if this is important to you. I hear that some Bosch washing machines are now manufactured elsewhere.
